Player Profile: James Bishop

I have one card of James Bishop, from 1992 Classic Best.

Playing career: Third baseman James Bishop spent eleven years in the Blue Jays, Indians, Reds, Brewers and White Sox organizations. In 1031 games he hit .260 with 75 HR and 482 RBI.

Where he is now: He is very active in urban youth baseball instruction in Los Angeles with the MLB Urban Youth Academy, where he is Facilities Manager, and The Baseball Legends, Cecil Fielder’s organization, where he is an instructor.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type James Bis, between James Bishop Artist, referring to an American painter living in Paris, and James Bistis, President of Core Services in Somerset, NJ. There are no references to the ballplayer on the first page of google results; the first entry refers to a New Jersey congressman from 1855-1857 who was a member of the Opposition Party, a moderate third party that descended from the Whigs.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Joe Bitker.
